This is a new page that I’ll add to as and when I can.  Some will be things that people have asked me to put in the site for them, some are mine.

VICTORIAN TILED CAST IRON GAS HEATER FOR SALE

RIGHT. Circa 1885, a beautiful cast iron gas fire, rear-flued by a Mr T Fletcher of Warrington. I know that as his name is cast into the very detailed ironwork.


Lovely inlaid tiles and an intricate tubed heat-exchanger that would make this very efficient. I’d say this could be made to work by a competent gas fitter.


Imagine it once it’s had some ‘fire-black’ applied. - Something I really should do...


There’s some interesting history regarding Mr  Thomas Fletchers business here:

I have a particular affection for these buses. As a kid I’d get a Red Rover ticket and often take the 251 from Arnos Grove station up to Burnt Oak, have a wander around and return. That ‘all day’ ticket cost 2/6d or half a crown, [or 12.5p to you youngsters]! £495
